Synopsis

In the Evil Day by Peter Temple

Con Niemand is a mercenary whose business is surviving. John Anselm is a struggling intelligence agent whose business is information. Caroline Wishart is a tabloid journalist whose business, until now, has been the sex lives of politicians. Their paths collide when Niemand stumbles across a secret terrible enough to destroy lives and depose governments.

Against his will, Anselm is plunged into a world of violence, betrayal and death. He must break out of his anesthetized life and pit himself against forces that he does not understand, forces determined to rebury an atrocity that threatens reputations and lives across the globe, while Niemand is hunted across two continents by people he doesn’t know.

Cleverly plotted and peppered with dark irony and lean prose, In the Evil Day conjours a world where information is more dangerous than explosives and secrets are worth more than human life.

Reviews

‘Temple is as dark and as mean, as cool and as mesmerising, as any James Ellroy or Elmore Leonard.' Age

‘Temple is a master.’
John Harvey

‘This is crime writing at its very best, discovering Peter Temple has been the highlight of my year.’
Mark Billingham

‘Temple’s work is spare, deeply ironic; his wit, like the local beer, as cold as a dental anaesthetic’ Australian

‘It might well be the best crime novel published in this country'
Weekend Australian
